Sennheiser Unveils Two New Headphones

Affordable Home-Listening Models Highlight Comfort, Performance

Old Lyme, Connecticut –Two new home-listening headphone models from Sennheiser feature the kind of detailed, dynamic sound that has made the German firm synonymous with hi-fi personal listening for more than 30 years. Sennheiser Electronic Corp., the company’s U.S. arm, has introduced the HD 465 and HD 485 models, a pair of over-the-ear Open-Aire headphones that feature outstanding comfort, superb sound, and surprising value.

The HD 465 and HD 485 both employ a new evolution of Sennheiser’s exceptionally capable and accurate dynamic driver design. Employing high-current aluminum voice-coils, these deliver superb clarity and remarkably wide-range performance: 16-24,000 Hz for the HD 485; 18-21,500Hz from the HD 465. Both models provide impressive dynamic potential, for lifelike reproduction at real-world levels, translating all the impact and excitement of live music to the personal listening experience.

Further differentiating the two new Sennheisers is the convenient headphone-holder supplied with the HD 485. Easily attached to a table or shelf, or virtually any horizontal or vertical surface, this gives the HD 485s a safe, convenient “home” when not in use.

The HD 465 and HD 485 combine a lightweight design (just 220 grams), ergonomic headband geometry, and large, ultra-soft earpads crafted from high-grade materials to deliver luxurious comfort for even extended listening sessions.

Users will find the detachable (and replaceable), snarl-resistant single-sided cords found on both new models to be a welcome feature–and they will find extra peace of mind with Sennheiser’s unique two-year warranty.

The HD 465 and HD 485 will be available March 2005, at Sennheiser’s suggested retail prices of $79.95 and $99.95, respectively.
